Hide Profile

Henry Brougham was born and raised in Edinburgh, attended Edinburgh University, practiced law in the city, and co-founded the influential Edinburgh Review. In 1803 he moved to London, becoming associated with the radical left wing of the Whig Party. He also practiced law in London, and was appointed to the House of Commons in 1810, establishing himself as one of the leading radicals in Parliament and holding several important positions. He supported education reform and the abolition of slavery, and was given a peerage in 1830. After the Whigs lost power, he retired to Cannes, where he was known as a colorful personality, an orator, and a wit. He designed the four-wheeled carriage that bears his name (brougham).

Henry Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux, Scottish writer, scientist, lawyer, Whig politician and abolitionist. His 1808 critique -- in the Edinburgh Review, which he co-founded -- of Byron's Hours of Idleness prompted the poet to respond with English Bards and Scotch Reviewers. Brougham acted as legal adviser to Queen Caroline, and his brilliant defense led to her acquittal at her trial in 1820. He helped establish the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, London University, and as a reformer did much work in addressing issues of law reform, slavery, and education in Great Britain.
